Rapper Phao has released a mixtape titled ‘Make It Hot,’ a remake of her hit '2 Phut Hon', featuring American rapper Tyga.

Phao, real name Nguyen Dieu Huyen, rose to fame last year with '2 Phut Hon' (Over Two Minutes) and by finishing runner-up in TV show King Of Rap.

She collaborated with local producer KAIX for the '2 Phut Hon' (KAIX remix) version, which became a mega hit worldwide and even topped the most searched song globally on Shazam, an app that can identify music and TV shows by listening to a short sample of their audio, in December last year.

The remixed version was later released under Dutch electronic music record label Spinnin' Records, and has raked in over nine million views on YouTube since its premiere in January.

After hearing the viral hit, Tyga reached out to Phao to collaborate with the 18-year-old artist.

On Friday Phao and Tyga's '2 Phut Hon' (Make It Hot) [KAIZ Remix] remake was released on both YouTube channels of Phao and Spinnin' Records.

It has the of Vinahouse beat, a house music style developed in Vietnam’s bars and clubs and Phao’s forte.

For the 31-year-old Tyga, this meant he had to switch from his usual style of rap and try house music.

Both artists’ teams said the remake is the first of many collaborations between the two.

It is known that the duo are producing and making a completely new track, which is expected to be released next year.
